Crozet Pizza’s Bob Crum Passes

From Crozet Pizza’s Facebook page:

Our hearts are heavy this week as Crozet lost a legend.

Mr. Bob Crum passed away on May 5, 2015.

Mr. Crum was a pioneer in small business long before “buy local” was a hashtag. The Crums brought National accolades to our sweet little Crozet with their delicious pizza and generations of families are eating the same recipe today.

When Crozet Pizza opened in 1977, it had just 5 tables, all handmade by Mr. Crum. Mrs. Crum perfected the dough, Mr. Crum perfected the sauce and he made every single pizza by hand for 31 years. THIRTY-ONE YEARS.

Together the Crums created a culture around Crozet Pizza that we know, love, and very much appreciate today. Please join us as we offer support, kindness, prayers, and a fondness for what Mr. Crum created in our community.

And from the Daily Progress:

 A celebration of Bob’s life will be held at Crozet Pizza on Monday, May 11, 2015, from 2 until 6 p.m. All are welcome.Condolences may offered at
